Cadet, Italy, B610
This pipe is from the Savinelli's Cadet line. But for an unknown reason (fills?) the Italian maker has omitted any reference to the brand: The "S" on the stem logo is canceled and the "Savinelli" stamping on the shank disappeared. Compare with the true Savinelli Cadet and observe these omissions.
